I had a lot of fun with this movie and it was actually my first introduction to this series and had no idea that it was an adaptation so I can give it credit for that and idk I just really liked it

What I don’t like about these anime adaptations is the creator’s fears of doing something new with the work. The movies are either too faithful or to far apart. I wish the directors explored the core elements of the anime but changed parts of it to add their own twist on it. What’s the point of wasting time with these movies when there’s nothing new that is done well in it? There’s gotta be something unique in them otherwise it’s better to watch the original product

Hugo dying is the best thing scene in that movie. He's so annoying and the actor is so bland compared to the other actors.

I did not finish this movie. Why did I not finish this movie? "Since I'm learning names already, why don't you tell me yours?" ... Who the fuck says that, especially after waking up only minutes or a few hours prior with no memory?

I absolutely love the manga, but Western audiences are not ready for the Jupiter Union or République Vénus, much less Anomaly.

Definitely a 8/10 I think it's acceptable unlike other anime movies, I only think it needs minor improvements tbh

I totally get it, that some media just doesn't translate well to others. Like try to imagine Alita as a Broadway musical.

The OVA this is directly adapting (not the manga source) actually covers the exact same story material in a shorter runtime.

It may be a faithful adaptation in most individual parts, but it meshes so many story arcs together that it completely screws up the pacing and makes some moments just awful.
In the movie she only really keeps winning and improving, whereas the manga wrecks her right in her second fight and the doc gets heavily injured. And it's the doc, not some miracle adventure, that gives her the berserker body.
It's in that context that the bar fight happens - because the doc pleads for aid and Alita is upset at the bounty hunters responding with ridicule. In the movie she just arrogantly strolls in there and looks like jackass.
And all of this happens way before Alita's love interest or motorball are even introduced.

Anime movies are good just not 3D animated ones and live action ones like Bleach Fade to Black and the dbz and dbs movies

In reality the major major issue with this movie is that productions can’t work fast and efficiently enough to get two - three films out in a year to properly pace the story and viewers can’t afford to go to the movies that often nor do production companies have the money to do that large of a budget and so the whole thing is limited by time/money. Both are fleeting.

Your complaint about the difficulties of proper media transitions is applicable the to every genere; not just anime.

Alita is the one instance of the movie being better than the anime.

I just watched the movie and enjoyed it alot, but I did notice the weird ass pacing and some really bad dialogue. The action and designwork was on fucking point though and the ballsport scenes were highly excilirating action scenes for being full on cgi. Its probably the best "faithful" western adaptation of a manga/anime, as the best anime/manga based movie is still Oldboy by far.

I agree with most of what you said... I'm just a little uncomfortable with how you tossed around the word "anime" as a homogenous story formula. Anime is a very diverse subculture, artform, *and* medium of storytelling. Saying that you "like anime" is almost like saying "I like books". You might hate Alita and other kinds of meme-able shonen battle anime but you may love "slice-of-life" realistic fiction anime. It's not quite as simple as "all anime stories do not lend themselves to adaptation" because "anime" is not a small unified thing.

Ahem, Crying Freeman (starring Mark Dacascos) and Guyver: Dark Hero (starring David SOLID SNAKE Hayter) are both really good live action western adaptations of Japanese manga. Don't bother with the first Guyver film, though, just stick with Dark Hero.

I really didn't expect everyone to hate Hugo in the comments. I actually loved Hugo in the movie, and so did the rest of my family. Weird

weirdly enough, I think the movie suffers because the Rollerball arc was crammed in there for spectacle, but they messed up Hugo. Hear me out: Hugo was supposed to be a pathetic weasel who survives at the mercy of powerful forces outside his control. His tragic backstory which fuels his desire to escape the city is massively undercut by A: A PG13 film greatly undercutting how dangerous the city is, B: removing the emotional throughput for his motivation by cutting out his tragic backstory, and C: trying to make him Likable. Hugo isn't likable, he's tragic, and pathetic. By the end of the story, his dreams are crushed, he loses his mind, and he climbs the tube to Zalem, only to be given one final middle-finger before dying. The role he serves in the Manga is critical in establishing emotional through-lines, and exemplify the core philosophical theme of ALITA: Nihilism. Hopelessness. Alitas story is a tragedy, and one by one, everything goes wrong, and almost everyone dies. Hugo is the beginning of that theme, and it did not translate in the movie.

This is one of the rare cases where we have a good adaption, but not a very good movie.

Love how half of of the comments are arguing about this critic being right or wrong but at the end of the day everyone has their own critique and tastes, something he might think is shit may be a masterpiece for another, if you have doubts just watch it and rate it yourselves... instead of believing someone that might have different tastes than you. SMH. people that can't decide for themselves and look for someone to rate something for them are too dependent and like someone else mentioned "a mindless drone"
